Sessions normally last one hour, and are held in my comfortable private consulting room in Hampton (near Teddington). First session are always free, without any obligation to continue, so you can check out you're comfortable working with me. Tea, fresh coffee and herb teas are always availablle. Parking is free, and I am close to bus and train connections.

I work evenings, weekends, and daytimes.

Clients often choose to work with me once a week, at a regular time. This is usually the most effective level of contact. I am happy to reserve a regular weekly slot for you, if I have space.  However, you may prefer to simply book your next session week-by-week, and you don't need to block-book a series of sessions. I can offer you appointments on different days and times each week, if this is more convenient for you because of shift work or child-care issues. You may also prefer to see me fortnightly or monthly, or an an irregular basis, particularly if you are travelling some distance to see me.

I can also offer you 90-minute or 2 hour sessions if you prefer. If you are travelling a long way, or are only in London for a brief period ,I offer 3 hour, half-day or whole-day sessions.

If you have young children, or in other special circumstances, I can offer home visits (though I have to charge for travelling time). Additionally, if I have previously met you in person at least once, I can offer you Skype or phone sessions.

I work evenings, weekends, all day Fridays plus some other weekday morning and afternoon slots depending on my teaching commitments. My earliest session is at 7am, and my last at 9pm.

Relationship counselling is for couple and individuals, of all genders and sexualities, whether currently in relationships or not. If a partner doesn't want to attend counselling, you can attend individually. You may also feel it might be useful to have one or two individual sessions alongside couple sessions. The rule of confidentiality means that nothing brought up in an individual session would be disclosed in a couple session.

You stop working with me simply when you decide to. While I appreciate advance notice of cancellation, there is no penalty if you have to miss a session.

Payment may be made in cash or by bank transfer (usually at the end of the session).

Please feel free to ask me anything about the counselling process, or what to expect.
